Chapter 7 -
Prophecy and the present times
I’m going to touch lightly on a number of subjects in this chapter. How will we
know who the Antichrist and the False Prophet are? Who is the Great Whore in
Revelation? What is the New World Order? Etc...
Before I begin, please remember that fulfilled prophecy cannot be stated as a
fact until it has come to pass. I've studied a lot of theories on prophecy and
what I've written here is what rings true in my mind after countless hours of
study, but I will never say this is absolute fact until we see it happen.
However, the symbols used in the Bible will be known at the time of the end (Dan
12:9) and when you finish this book I believe you will agree with me that there
is little doubt that the time is now.
Revival of the Holy Roman / Islamic Ottoman Empire
Dan 2:31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image,
whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was
terrible. 32 This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of
silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, 33 His legs of iron, his feet part of
iron and part of clay. 34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without
hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake
them to pieces. 35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the
gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer
threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for
them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the
whole earth. 36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof
before the king. 37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven
hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. 38 And wheresoever
the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven
hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art
this head of gold. 39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to
thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the
earth. 40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron
breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these,
shall it break in pieces and bruise. 41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and
toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but
there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the
iron mixed with miry clay. 42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and
part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. 43 And
whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with
the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not
mixed with clay. 44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set
up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left
to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms,
and it shall stand for ever. 45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut
out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the
brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the
king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the
interpretation thereof sure.
Daniel interprets the dream of King Nebuchadnezzar. He saw an image that
had a head of gold, breast and arms of silver, belly and thighs of brass, legs
of iron, and feet of iron mixed with clay with ten toes of part iron and part
clay. Each of these sections represents a world dominating power.
Many nations have existed since that time, but the sections represent world
domination (of the known world) as stated in Daniel 2:39.
A very popular theory for this passage is that
it is a parallel prophecy of Daniel 7, where it lists the four kingdoms that
will exist at the time of the return of Christ. This cannot be true for a couple
reasons. First, there are five sections to the statue in Daniel 2 and there are
only four beasts in Daniel 7. Second, if we continue to read Daniel 7:
11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn
spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given
to the burning flame. 12 As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their
dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.
We see that the fourth beast, the little horn
(the Antichrist and his one world government), is destroyed and the other three
beasts (the lion, bear, and leopard) have their dominion taken away but they
live on for a while. If this is a parallel prophecy with Daniel 7, then the
empires (Babylon, Media/Persia, Greek, Roman) would all still have to be in
existence when Christ returns, but they are not and can not. This is definitely
a different prophecy with kingdoms differing from the kingdoms we see in Daniel
7. The common factor is that they end at the same place with the return of the
Lord. So we know for certain that these are consecutive kingdoms and are
not the same nations we find in Daniel 7. But, like other prophecies discussed
in this book, the two have a common intersection at the end. When the stone
smote the image and became a great mountain; verses 44 and 45 tell us that it's
the same declaration as we found in Daniel 7:9. It is the end of this age when
the Lord returns, casts down the nations and the governments of the world, and
sets up His kingdom on the earth. Lastly, in Revelation 13 we
see that the four beasts of Daniel 7 become one beast, the united government of
the Antichrist (The New World Order). All four beasts exist at that time! They
are not kingdoms of the past.
Gold – Babylon
Babylon ruled until the Medes and the Persians conquered Babylon in 539 BC.
Silver – Media-Persia
The Medes and Persians ruled until Alexander the Great defeated them in 331 BC.
Brass – Greece
The Grecian empire lasted until the Romans defeated them in 197 BC.
Iron – Rome
The Roman empire lasted about 500 years until it decayed from within and was
overrun by barbarians around 300 AD. This was the largest of the empires
controlling most of Europe and the Middle East nations. In 325 AD Emperor
Constantine created the Catholic Church in an attempt to re-unify Roman rule
and as time went on the Roman Catholic Church grew in power within the Western
splinter of the old Roman Empire as well as the Eastern (or Greek) Orthodox
Catholic Church until Charlemagne was crowned "Emperor" of the Holy Roman Empire
in 800 AD. During this same period of time, the Islamic Empire in the Middle
East was rising and became the Islamic Ottoman Empire around 1300 AD.
Iron and Clay – Holy Roman / Islamic Ottoman Empire
The iron is mingled with clay because it’s a continuation of the Roman Empire
via the Holy Roman Empire but was broken in two parts, co-existing with the
Islamic Ottoman Empire. The Holy Roman Empire controlled the nations of the
northern Roman Empire (Europe) while the Islamic Empire controlled the Middle
Eastern nations of the Roman Empire. Both of these Empires together comprised
the total area controlled by the Roman Empire.
The language used in this prophecy says that this kingdom is “divided” and
“partly strong and partly broken”. It is divided because it is two kingdoms who
controlled the same area.
The Holy Roman Empire was founded when Pope Leo III crowned Charlemagne in 800
AD and proclaimed him to be the first emperor of the Holy Roman Empire.
The Holy Roman Empire has risen and fallen many times since then (partly strong
and partly broken) and has always been ruled by both a religious leader and a
political leader. We still have a “Charlemagne prize” which was awarded to
Bill Clinton in 2000 and was awarded to Javier Solana in 2007. This prize
is awarded to the person who does the most for the reunification of Europe.
The Islamic Empire began after Muhammad created his monotheistic Muslim religion
and it spread rapidly among Arab nations. It, like the Holy Roman Empire, rose
and fell many times (partly strong and partly broken) until the Ottoman Empire
was founded around 1300 AD and continued until 1923. The modern Arab League
mirrors the EU in that is uniting the Muslim nations in the same type of
economic cooperative but membership is based on it's Muslim culture rather than
Both of these Empires still exist in spirit within the nations they controlled.
The EU and the Islamic Nations of the Middle East.
The Bible tells us that the Antichrist and the False Prophet of the bible will
revive and unite these two kingdoms to create the End Time world government, the
New World Order. This is the iron mingled with clay that follows the Roman
Empire, the last kingdom that will exist before the return of Christ, and will
be the power base that the Antichrist uses to control the world.
The ten toes agree with the ten horns, or ten kingdoms we talked about in the
“Modern nations in the Bible” chapter. Meaning there will be a ten nation,
or ten state union in the end time that will produce and give power to the
Antichrist as shown to us in Revelation 17:8-14. It's interesting that
Russia has ten "states" today. It’s also interesting that the Western
European Union, the military wing of the EU, is a group of ten nations that
Javier Solana heads up. It's absolutely certain that European nations will be part
of the New World Order, and the ten kings could come from Europe.
It's also possible that the ten nations will emerge from the
Islamic nations giving their power to what they will believe is their Mahdi.
Verse 44 predicts that, “in the days of these kings”, in the days of the Holy
Roman Empire, will the God of heaven set up His kingdom which shall never be
This is the same declaration as the one we saw in Daniel 7 and the seventh
trumpet: Rev 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices
in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our
Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
That means that the Holy Roman / Islamic Ottoman Empire will be the last world
dominating power and will exist when Jesus returns to set up His kingdom. I am
certain that this will be a union of Roman Catholicism and Islam, as you will
see shortly in this chapter.
New world order – the coming one world government
The four beasts we discussed in the, “Modern nations in the bible” chapter
become one beast. This is the final empire. The nations of the End Time unite to
become one beast with many parts. This will be a union of the three nations
along with the final beast; a union of Russia, two nations of the EU, and Islam.
Rev 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of
the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and
upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 2 And the beast which I saw was like unto
a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth
of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
The mouth of the lion is a true representation of the global language adopted as
the universal language for the New World Order. Britain is the lion and
English is the language of Britain.
You can’t really live in the world today and not know that the UN is fast
becoming the government of the New World Order. We have a world bank,
world court, world economics, world peace keeping force (world military), and a
fast materializing world religion referred to as Interfaithism. Everything
is falling into place for the Antichrist to take power. It is very likely
that the Antichrist will be crowned “king” of the Holy Roman Empire by the
reigning pope of that time, confirming the revival of Holy Roman Empire, and
this same man will likely be considered by the Muslim world to be the Mahdi (the
Muslim Messiah) which will revive the Ottoman Empire. He will wield the
power of the UN, as well as the power of the ten state union that he arose from
and will unite the world under the auspices of peace. He will also unite the
world in a common religion.
Interfaithism and the coming one world religion
The bible tells us that the
religion of the end time will be one where the false prophet will deceive the
whole world and cause the world to worship the Antichrist by doing miracles such
as pulling fire from the sky. This religion already exists but will be made
universal by the power given the Antichrist and the false prophet by the devil.
The bible doesn't specifically tells us what that religion will be called, but
we can determine what it will be by looking at the facts. The world is pretty
much dominated by Christianity and Islam (over half of the worlds population
combined). While Hinduism comes in a close third, it doesn't look like it will
play a significant role in the end times predicted by the Bible. The false
prophet will seem to everyone to have Godly power and will fool the whole world
into worshiping the Antichrist.
The Roman Catholic church is the self proclaimed “mother” of all churches.
And this is actually true for most western faiths.
03 Sep 2000 (AP) VATICAN CITY (AP) - One of Pope John Paul II's closest aides
has written to bishops worldwide declaring that the Catholic church is the
“mother” of other Christian churches … In the document, Cardinal Joseph
Ratzinger told the bishops that it was incorrect to refer to Christian
churches, ranging from Orthodox to Protestant, as “sister” churches of the
Catholic church ... stating that the term “sister” puts them on an equal footing
and they are not “sisters” but the Catholic church is the “mother”.
The Vatican is the world’s biggest promoter of Interfaithism, promoting the idea
that all religions worship the same God and pushing a worldwide unity of
today is full of churches proclaiming that all religions worship the same God
and therefore we should embrace them. The Vatican has even
stated that the Muslims worship the same God that Christians do (Article #841 of
the Catechism), and that they will enjoy the same salvation equally. This means
that they believe it doesn't matter if you're a Christian or a Muslim
and that you can find salvation through either religion.
The Muslims, on the other hand,
have no such belief. In fact, Muslim doctrine teaches that Jesus is just a
prophet, not the manifestation of God in the flesh, and that He will return at
the end time to teach Christians the Muslim way and convert them. The prophecies
of the bible and the Muslim prophecies concerning the Antichrist (the Muslim
Mahdi) and the false prophet (the Muslim Jesus) mirror each other but the good
guys of Islam are the bad guys of the bible. This is a very good indication that
the Antichrist will rise as the Mahdi of Islam and will unite the Christian
world with him via the false prophet and create a global Islamic religion. The
bible tells us that this end time religion will be forced upon people or they
will be killed if they refuse. The Muslim prophecies tell us that the Muslims
will kill any who won't convert to Islam.
I've wondered in the past how the interfaith movement could include the Muslims,
and it would need to since a quarter of the earth is Muslim today.
There is ample evidence that the Islamic religion will be the religion of the
End Time. Here's why I think so:
The Islamic/Muslim prophecies are a parallel but opposite mirror of biblical
prophecy concerning the End Time. The Muslim
good guys are the Bible's bad guys.
The Muslim prophecies listed here are found
in the Quran and the Sunnah. Some believe Mohammed was possessed by a demon who
gave him these parallel prophecies (Mohammed actually said that he feared he was
possessed), but it could simply be that he had a copy of the book of Revelation
and patterned this all after the bible so as to look authentic. Personally, I
believe he was either possessed or given this information and guided to build
the Islamic religion by a demon or the devil himself.
Take a look at the following list:
The Islamic prophecies listed are from multiple sources. They all come from the Q'uran, Hadith, Sunnah and other Muslim sources - see references below
Please remember that these Islamic prophecies are not biblical but they show how
very deeply the Muslims of the world will be fooled because they mirror so
closely what will actually happen, and it will seem as if their prophecies are
coming true even though they are supporting the devil and his Antichrist.
Bible: The Antichrist is an unparalleled political, military, and religious
leader that will emerge in the last days. - Dan 8:24-25, Dan 11:40, Rev 13:7-8
Bible: the False Prophet is a secondary prominent figure that will emerge
in the last days who will support the Antichrist. - Rev 13:11-15, Rev 19:20, Rev 20:10
Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet together will have a powerful army
that will do great damage to the earth in an effort to subdue every nation and
dominate the world. - Rev 13, Dan 7:7, Dan 7:23
Bible: The False Prophet is described essentially as a dragon in lamb's
clothing. - Rev 13:11
Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet establish a new world order. - Rev 13:16-17
Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet institute new laws for the whole
earth. - Dan 7:25, Rev 13
Bible: The Antichrist is said to "change the times." - Dan 7:25
Islam: It is quite certain that if the Mahdi established Islam all over
the earth, he would discontinue the use of Saturday and Sunday as the weekend
for days of rest but rather Friday, the holy day of Islam. Also, he would most
certainly eliminate the Gregorian calendar and replace it with the Islamic
calendar used in every Islamic country.
Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will both be powerful religious
leaders who will attempt to institute a universal world religion. - Rev 13:12
Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will execute anyone who does
not submit to their world religion. - Rev 13:15
Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will specifically use beheading as
the primary means of execution for non-conformists. - Rev 20:4
Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will have a specific agenda to kill
as many Jews and Christians as possible. - Rev 13:7, Dan 7:21, Dan 11:30
Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will attack to conquer and seize
Jerusalem (the battle of Armageddon). - Rev 16:14, Rev 18:19, Ez 38:16
Bible: The Antichrist will set himself up in the Jewish Temple as his seat of
authority (the abomination of desolation). - 2 Thess 2:4, Dan 11:45, Dan 9:26-27, Dan 11:31, Dan 12:11, Matt 24:15
Bible: The False Prophet is said to do many miracles to deceive as many as
possible into supporting the Antichrist. - Rev 13:13-14
Islam: The Mahdi himself is said to control the weather and the crops. His face
is said to glow. We can also assume that since Jesus is viewed as having been
empowered by Allah to work miracles when He was here on earth the first time, He
will most likely be expected to continue to do so when He returns.
Bible: The belief at the time of Muhammad (and still believed by some people
today) was that the Antichrist is described as riding on a white horse in the
Book of Revelation. - Rev 6:2
Bible: The Antichrist is said to make a peace treaty (with many) with Israel for
seven years (the Confirmation of the Covenant). - Dan 9:27
Bible: Jesus the Jewish Messiah will return to defend the Jews in Israel from a
military attack from a vast coalition of nations led by the Antichrist and the
False Prophet (the battle of Armageddon). - Rev 19:11-16, Dan 7:9-13 and 22, Dan 2:34, Dan 2:44-45
Bible: The antichrist spirit specifically denies the most unique and central
doctrines of Christianity, namely the divinity of Jesus, the incarnation of God
in the flesh, and the substitutionary death of Jesus on the Cross.
- Makes war with the saints as shown in above scriptures - Dan 11:30
- The world today is trying to make Jesus unimportant and deny that He is God Himself
Islam: Islam doctrinally and spiritually specifically denies the most unique and
central doctrines of Christianity, namely the divinity of Jesus, the incarnation
of God in the flesh, and the substitutionary death of Jesus on the Cross.
Bible: The primary warning of Jesus and the Apostle Paul was to warn
Christians of the abundance of deceit and deception in the last days. - Matt 24:24, Matt 24:11, Col 2:8, 2 Cor 11:3, 2 Thessalonians 2:10, 1 Tim 4:1-2, Titus 1:16
Bible: From the Bible and history we learn that the final Antichrist empire will
be a revived version of the empire that succeeds the Roman Empire (the iron
mingled with clay of Daniel 2). - Dan 2:31-45
Bible: When the Antichrist emerges, a system will already exist poised to receive him as a
savior and to give allegiance to him.
- From Rev 13 and 17, Dan 11 and events that we know will happen, like the 6th trumpet war, we can see how the Bible shows us this is all being orchestrated right now with the "New World Order" and many other things.
Islam: Islam is already the second largest
religion and combined with Christianity constitutes over half of the worlds
population. Islam awaits the coming of the Mahdi with universal anticipation.
The Catholic church and many Christian churches believe that the Muslims will be
saved just like Christianity will be, and believe that they worship the same God
as Christianity. It's a very short step to convert to Islam if that is believed
to be the truth.
Now, this is the kicker... the cement that holds it all together... this shows us how it will all happen...
Understanding how the Muslims of the world will be fooled so badly by the False Prophet and the Antichrist becomes even more mind blowing when we understand how the Catholics of the world will also fall into this same trap:
It is incredibly eye-opening to learn that Catholic prophecy bears a very similar mirror of Biblical prophecy, where the Antichrist will be the "Great Monarch" and will be promoted by an "Angelic Pope" and they will fight the real Jesus (believing He is their antichrist) much the same as with Islamic prophecy. Thus, Catholics will be prone to the same exact deception as Muslims and will think it's their prophecy coming to pass when in fact it's the Bible's Antichrist and False Prophet causing the world to worship the Beast which is essentially Satan.
There are thousands of "prophecies" that have come from Catholics over the last 1700 years, and many conflict with each other, but there is a central theme of belief in The Great Monarch (which some believe is the second coming of Apollo), and the last Pope (St Malachy's prophecy of the 112th Pope, who just happens to be the current Pope Francis), and that this last Pope will work with the final emperor (The Great Monarch) to drive apostates out of Islam, Judaism and Christianity to combine all religions into one global religion.
As we've seen with Islamic prophecy, the devil engineered it so closely with Biblical prophecy that it will fool the world into believing it is their prophecy coming to pass when in fact it will be the opposite and will be the Antichrist and False Prophet as told to us in the Bible.
Catholic prophecy mirrors Islamic prophecy of the Muslim Jesus (the final Pope) and the Mahdi (the final emperor) and the Dajjal (the real Jesus) when He returns to destroy the enemies of God.
So, it's a mind blowing revelation to learn how all these things will work together to fool the entire world!
Common belief is that this final emperor will appear on the scene at the same time as the final Pope.
Democracy will be seen as a failed system and the world will be ready to accept a socialist monarchy (already happening among the Western World's youth).
A "just war" will take place to drive out the "apostates", which will end up being WW3, the 6th Trumpet War of the Bible, and will kill over 2 billion people.
It is very likely that this war is that which causes the world to feel enough fear to put themselves in the hands of the Antichrist, whom the Bible tells us will obtain his kingdom and power by flatteries, and his brilliance with "a mouth speaking great things", and "by peace" will destroy many.
In the name of peace he will be fighting wars and subduing the world that did not already give him their allegiance. The Bible shows us the Lion, Bear and Leopard (most likely Britain, Russia and Germany) will align with the kingdom of the Antichrist (10 Islamic kings who give him their power), and these combined powers will subdue the remaining nations of the world.
Rome, and the Great Whore (the Vatican) will ride upon this union and the False Prophet will cause the world to worship the Antichrist through miracles done in the sight of men by the power of Satan.
We know from Biblical prophecy that the last ruling "broken, divided" co-empire was and is the Holy Roman / Islamic Ottoman empire, and that it will be the last kingdom ruling when Jesus returns. It is very likely that the Pope will crown the Antichrist (The Great Monarch) as King of the Holy Roman Empire.
Pope Francis has called the world to "get ready for the end time" and appears to believe these Catholic prophecies and may even see himself as the earths savior and believes himself to be this prophesied Pope.
He is the greatest promoter of Interfaithism and is working very hard to bring the world under a One World Religion, and the New World Order.
He has had Islamic prayer in the Vatican, has been to prayer in Islamic Mosques, and has met with the top Islamic Imam stating the "the meeting itself is the message".
Pope Francis is the "Evangelical Pope" and many Christian churches are following him and going back to their mother (the Great Falling Away). The new Christian church of today is becoming Chrislam and fulfilling prophecy by going back to their "mother of harlots".
We are well into, and well on the way to further Biblical fulfillment...
Jesus will be coming soon!
We can see that the whole world
will be fooled by the false prophet and the Antichrist, including the Muslims and the Catholics!
The Muslims will believe it is their Mahdi, while the rest of the world will
follow the interfaith movement into believing that being a Muslim is the same as
Christianity in that we all worship the same God and therefore will enjoy the
same salvation. As stated, the Catholic church has already included Islam as
part of God's people and many Christian churches are following this belief. This
means that everyone who is fooled by this will think it's perfectly ok to
convert to Islam. I hope you understand that this is the lie that will fool the
whole world and is NOT true! Do Not Believe it!
- Much of the teaching in Islam comes from the Hadith and Sunnah. It's not like the Bible where I can just give you a verse to read. So here are the references for finding this information.

Who is the Great Whore?
The beast of the New World Order (Rev 13:1-2) has two meanings. It’s the
one world government and its ruler, but it is also part of an explanation for
the coming one world religion. This beast is the first three nations of Daniel 7
along with the fourth beast combined into one beast (a nation and it's ruler).
The false prophet will cause the world to worship the Antichrist and will create
the world religion discussed above.
There a few theories that Islam is the Great Whore, and some that it's the
United States, some that it's New York City. Let's examine that for a minute.
Remember that every detail of a prophecy has to be true for what you're looking
at to be that prophecy. There cannot be one thing that doesn't fit. When the
Bible refers to a whore while it's talking about a people or church, it's always
referring to the people of God who have turned away from true worship of Him
and/or included other false gods in their worship. It does not refer to a false
religion itself as a whore. So, the Great Whore, to fit with everything God has
already said, wouldn't be a false religion like Islam or Hinduism. Also, if
Islam is the Great Whore, who are the “daughters”? The Islamic religion has no
daughter religions. It really doesn't fit. As shown in the scriptures quoted
below, the Great Whore is a woman (a church) who is a “city” that sits on seven
hills and wears purple and scarlet. She is the mother of harlots. This rules out
the whole of the US. And, while New York is a city, nothing else really fits
except for the fact that NY is full of sin and filthiness. Islam is a religion
but it never worshiped the true God, is not a city that sits on seven hills and
the color of Islam is green, not purple and scarlet. Also, if the 10 kings of
Rev 17 are Islamic nations, why would they hate the whore if the whore was
Islam? Take a look at the following scriptures. I think you'll agree with my
conclusion based on fact and scripture. The Great Whore will cause the world to
worship the Antichrist, and promote a false religion, but that false religion
will not be the Great Whore itself. The Great Whore turns the world away from
the true God and plunges into this false religion, thereby becoming the Great
Rev 13:3 … and all the world wondered after the beast. 4 And they
worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped
the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with
All the world will worship the Antichrist.
Chapter 17 of the book of Revelation tells us who the end
time religious leader is.
Rev 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials,
and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the
judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
She’s a woman (God's depiction of a church) and she sits on many waters.
Verse 15 explains that the waters are: peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore
sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
What religious organization today has the widest variety of peoples, and
nations, and tongues?
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman
sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven
heads and ten horns.
The woman sat on the beast. This is the combined one world government
beast, ruled by the Antichrist, shown in Daniel 2 and 7-11 and Revelation 13 and
17. The false prophet (the end time religious leader) will ride on the
power wielded by the Antichrist and will rule with him. The beast is
represented as scarlet color in this passage because it will be a Communist
(Socialist) government that rules the world.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with
gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of
abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
She was wearing purple and scarlet. What religious organization wears
purple and scarlet? The Catholic leadership; cardinals, archbishops, and
bishops wear purple and scarlet.
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE
MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
She is the mother of harlots. God has always used a woman to symbolize the
church. In II Corinthians 11:2 God’s true church is symbolized as a woman,
a virgin. False churches are symbolized as harlots. The woman is
depicted as a “great whore” in verse 1. Being the mother of harlots means
her “daughter” churches are harlots (false churches). How many daughters does
the Roman Catholic church have? Many.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven
mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
The seven heads that the woman is sitting on are seven mountains.
Interesting, that the Vatican is in Rome; which is called the City of Seven
Hills. The Catholic Encyclopedia states: "It is within the city of
Rome, called the city of seven hills, that the entire area of Vatican State
proper is now confined" (The Catholic Encyclopedia, Thomas Nelson, 1976,
s.v. "Rome"). The Vatican is virtually sitting on seven mountains.
18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over
the kings of the earth.
What city reigns over the “kings of the earth”? How does the Catholic
church “conquer” a nation? She turns the nation Catholic. And the
Roman Catholic church believes that she has the right to guide the political
thinking of any and all of her members. The Vatican is really the only
city that can be said to reign over the kings of the earth.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the
blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great
An estimated 68 million Christians have been put to death over the years for
refusing to bow to the false doctrine of the Roman Catholic church.
I must say at this point, that I have nothing personal against Catholics in any
way. I have Catholic friends and I love them very much. Jesus loves
all people and anyone can be saved. Anyone! I’m simply pointing out
what the scriptures say and what it appears to mean based on the knowledge we
have today. It sure appears that the Roman Catholic church will be what
God calls the Great Whore.
The leader of the Great Whore will be the False Prophet of Revelation 13.
The false prophet will look like a lamb (the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ), but
will speak as a dragon (the devil). The Antichrist will use this person to help
gain power over the entire world. The religion of Islam is a false religion, but
the Great Whore imitates the one true religion and worship of Jesus Christ as
God. The Muslim beliefs pervert the worship of the one true God by making the
world believe that Jesus is not actually His son, the manifestation of God in
the flesh. When we put all the facts that we know together, it is the leader of
the Great Whore who will support the Mahdi and bring the Western world into
Muslims believe that Christians are the what they call “The People of the Book”
and are regarded as misguided but that they worship the same God that they do
even though they are considered blasphemers, infidels, and idolaters and are
hated by Muslims for what they believe about Jesus. Islamic prophecy says that
when the Muslim Jesus returns he will re-educate Christians and convert them to
Islam. Any who will not convert will be killed.
The Antichrist will be promoted by a miracle-working religious partner
He will most likely be crowned “king” of the Holy Roman Empire by the reigning
Roman Catholic pope. This man will be come in the name of Jesus (the Lamb)
will get his power from the devil himself. (the dragon) He will pull fire
from the sky and perform miracles to deceive the people of the world. Many
people will be awed and deceived by this power. Please don’t be one of
them! This man will definitely not be a man of God; he will be this
It is almost a certainty that a Roman Catholic pope will be the religious leader
that crowns the Antichrist leader of the Holy Roman Empire and the Antichrist
will already rule the Islamic nations, confirming the revival of the kingdom
that succeeds the Roman Empire. The false prophet will rule with him during the
Great Tribulation predicted in Revelation.
A religious leader will work side by side with the Antichrist; called the false
Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had
two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the
power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell
therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 And he
doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth
in the sight of men, 14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means
of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast;
The false prophet will most likely come from the end time religious leader, the
Roman Catholic church. He looks like a lamb (like Jesus) but speaks as a dragon
(the devil). As we've seen in this chapter and other areas of this book, the
Roman Catholic Church is the entity that appears to be what God refers to as the
"Great Whore". The church's position on Interfaith and its statement about
Muslims in the Catechism reveal that she will support Islam and if we see a Pope
declare support for a Muslim who is claiming to be the "Mahdi", most of the
Catholic and Christian world will follow (together this is about 2 billion
people). With support from over half the world population (Catholic/Christian
and Islam together), this man will take over the world. It looks an awful lot
like the Antichrist will rise as the Muslim Mahdi and that the False Prophet
will ride on his coattails as the Muslim Jesus. Watch closely what happens with
the next Pope.
Update: In June 2014 Pope Francis invited the Muslims to pray to the devil in the Vatican... This man looks to be the false prophet of the Bible more and more every day. Check this article: http://english.alarabiya.net/en/News/middle-east/2014/06/06/Islamic-prayers-to-be-held-at-the-Vatican.html

Islam in Bible prophecy
Since the prophecies concerning the end time are all coming to pass now, it is
certain that the Antichrist and the False Prophet are alive on the earth at this
very moment. Both of them are undoubtedly in power right now or very near
the reigns of power. We probably already know the names of these men, but
just don’t know who they are yet.
The bible tells us that we will be able to identify the Antichrist when the time
is ripe. That day shall not come until that man of sin be revealed.
2 Thess 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come,
except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son
One distinct possibility concerning the Antichrists identity is the Jordanian King Abdullah II.
There are several reasons for thinking this. One is that Daniel tells us that the Antichrist
will come from a small people (Dan 11:23). Jordan is a very small kingdom and could fit this
description. Two, Jordan is one of the countries that the Bible tells us explicitly will "escape
out of his hand", meaning it will not be one of the countries that the Antichrist conquers. This
could easilly mean that it's where he came from, had no quarrel with his rule, and as such has
no need to conquer. Three, he is a descendant of Muhammad, and would be accepted by the majority
of Muslims as their Mahdi. Four, the little horn of Daniel will obtain the kingdom by flatteries
and in the name of peace. Dan 8:25 shows us that the Antichrist "by peace shall destroy many".
The Jordanian king is playing an ever increasing role in bringing about a peace treaty between
Israel and Palestine. This "peace" is of course a lie to lull the enemies of Islam into complacency
until they can conquer them. If he is instrumental in a peace agreement, it will be accepted by
the world which believes that "moderate" Islam is peaceful, and if he brings peace and an end
to the beheadings and violence by Isis, the world will clamour into his hand. He is definitely
a man worth watching...
There are over fifty specific prophecies concerning the Antichrist in the books
of Daniel, Revelation and II Thessalonians alone. We will discuss a few of
these in order to develop a profile whereby this man can be identified when we
see him rise to power.
The Antichrist is definitely a man
Dan 7:21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed
against them; 22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the
saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the
kingdom. 23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon
earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole
earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. 24 And the ten horns out
of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after
them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the
saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be
given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
Some say that the Antichrist will be a system, not a man. This passage
alone is enough to prove that he is definitely a man. He shall subdue
three kings. He shall speak great words against the most High. He
shall wear out the saints of the most High and will make war against the saints.
He is definitely a man. He will be the ruler of the one world government.
Dan 11:37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of
women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. 38 But in his
estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not
shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant
He's not the devil himself as some teach, but he is definitely a man who has
"fathers". The devil does not have "fathers" nor does a "system".
Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that
wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the
mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast
alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
Rev 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the
bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon,
that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon
him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should
be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
Revelation 19 and 20 above show that the Antichrist and False Prophet are both
cast alive into the lake of fire, but Satan is bound and thrown into the
bottomless pit. This proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Antichrist
is not Satan but is a man along with the False Prophet. Satan may possess
the Antichrist after Satan is cast to the earth (discussed in chapters 6 and
10), but the Antichrist is not the devil, he is a man.
Dan 7:11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the
horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and
given to the burning flame.
This passage says that the 4th beast, the representation of the Antichrist (the
little horn), is slain and his BODY destroyed. This is the same
declaration we see in Rev 19 where the Antichrist and False Prophet are cast
into the lake of fire. He is most definitely a man.
He will confirm the covenant with many for seven years
Dan 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the
midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and
for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the
consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
In this Old Testament verbiage, a week means a “week of years”, or seven years
(Genesis 29:27). The confirmation of the covenant is this: there will be
an international agreement to confirm the status of Jerusalem and the permanent
borders of Israel. These things are being fought over right now with the
Palestinians. The Antichrist will confirm the covenant along with many
others. It may be hard to identify him at that time. In the midst of
this “week” (three and one half years in), the
Antichrist will cause the animal sacrifices being performed in the
rebuilt temple to cease, and will cause the “abomination of desolation” by
either claiming to be God or acting in the place of God. That is when we
will definitely know who he is.
The Antichrist will arise among a union of ten kings
Dan 7:24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall
arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the
first, and he shall subdue three kings.
We’ve talked about this in previous chapters. We see that he will arise
out of a union of ten nations. And he will uproot, or subdue, three kings (states or nations).
Rev 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have
received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
The ten kings will give their power and strength to the Antichrist.
When we see a man rise among a ten-nation union subduing three kings (the
leaders of states or nations), watch closely and know that the time is near!
His kingdom will be the revived Holy Roman / Ottoman Empire
As discussed in other areas of this book,
he will likely be crowned king of the Holy Roman Empire by the reigning Pope and
will likely be considered the Muslim Mahdi.
The Antichrist will use peace as a weapon
Dan 8:25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his
hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy
many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be
broken without hand.
He will most likely rise from the horror of World War 3, the sixth trumpet, and
will use peace to gain his power and control over the world. By peace he
shall destroy many. In his arrogance, he will stand up to Jesus Christ at
the seventh trumpet, but he will not win, of course.
He will claim to be God and will be the Abomination of Desolation
Matt 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world
for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. 15 When ye
therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the
prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16 Then
let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
The event Jesus is referring to in Matthew 24:15 is Daniel 9:27 and Daniel
11:31. The Antichrist will confirm the covenant for seven years and will
be an abomination to God and will make it (the holy place; the Temple) desolate.
Dan 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the
midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and
for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the
consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Dan 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the
sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall
place the abomination that maketh desolate.
2 Thess 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God,
or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God,
shewing himself that he is God.
This event Paul is referring to in 2 Thessalonians is also the “abomination of
desolation”. Three and one half years after the confirmation of the
covenant, he will sit in the rebuilt temple of Jerusalem and claim to be God.
Most believe that he will claim to be all god’s and all messiahs. He will
probably claim to be the god of Islam, Buddhism, etc. When you see this
happen, you will know without a doubt that he is the Antichrist.
He will be regarded as brilliant
Daniel 7:8 and Revelation 13:5 say that he will have a mouth speaking great
things. Daniel 8:23 describes him as “understanding dark sentences”.
He will persecute God’s people and he will rule the entire world
Rev 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to
overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and
Dan 7:21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed
God’s people will be persecuted. Since Satan is behind all of this, it’s
not surprising. Power is given to him over all nations...
The number of his name will be 666
Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of
the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred
threescore and six.
We don’t have any idea at this time what this will mean, but it will become
clear when the time comes.
